Homeless Services

We believe that all people should have access to safe, stable, and permanent housing. We also believe that those in our community that are unsheltered deserve to have access to services that not only help them in gaining housing, but also services to help them until they are housed. Community Action Partnership of Strafford County provides needed supplies and services in order to survive while unsheltered and provide services to becoming sheltered. We provide services both at our Drop-in Center and through direct outreach to those living outdoors.

If you have an immediate housing need, call now: 603-403-2032
